3 Reasons to visit DMV.org
Department of Motor Vehicles
To round out the automobile posts this week it would be helpful to explore DMV.org. There is much more you can explore on this site than listed below. This is a privately owned site, that provides information and links to help you use the services at your DMV.
Some things you will find.
Whether you are getting your license for the first time, or moving to a new location, you can find links to the handbook for your state. Select your state, and scroll down to find a link for “Driver Manual.” Many states links go directly to a pdf file, others go to a page with various links. Some states have more than one language, California even has audio for some manuals and video for ASL (American Sign Language.)
If you are not a driver, they also have a page to see the requirements and documentation needed to get an identification card.
If you are buying or selling a car with a private party, you will need paperwork for the sale. States that require a bill of sale are listed. If your state is listed, you can read the details of what is required, including a link to the state’s form when available.
If your state does not require a Bill of Sale, DMV.org has a “free, printable, generic bill of sale.”
Many other forms are available for your state. For example, you can get forms for drivers license, title, and Application for Mississippi Assigned Vehicle Identification Number for Homemade Trailer. If you are moving to a new state, this can be so handy to quickly access information to update your records.
